Aquamarine

by admin last modified Apr 03, 2017 04:51 PM
Aquamarine (from Latin: aqua marina, "water of the sea") is a blue or cyan variety of beryl.

It occurs at most localities which yield ordinary beryl. The largest aquamarine of gemstone quality ever mined was found in Marambaia, Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 1910. It weighed over 110 kg (240 lb), and its dimensions were 48.5 cm (19 in) long and 42 cm (17 in) in diameter. The largest cut aquamarine gem is the Dom Pedro aquamarine, now housed in the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History.
